Course Design for Rapidly Moving Your Course Online

This series of resources moves beyond using OWL tools to focus on key considerations, techniques, and approaches for online teaching and learning.

As we transition to a fully online Spring/Summer 2020 term, courses will continue to be moved rapidly online and use an asynchronous instructional approach whenever possible. These resources are organized as a learning pathway so that instructors can focus on specific areas of effective course design and instruction as needed. Each pathway contains a few short videos and related resources that can be explored further as needed.

Drop in Q&A sessions for some of these pathways are also available for you to ask questions and explore the ideas further after you've viewed the videos. Registration for available pathways is available in the path descriptions below.

The pathways include:

  1. How Online Learners Learn - We recommend starting with this pathway
  2. Designing to Meet Course Learning Outcomes
  3. Organizing Course Content
  4. Facilitating Online Learning
  5. Designing for Accessibility in Online Learning
  6. Choosing and Providing Access to Course Readings
